It seems only logical that by the time an author writes the 16th book in a series, the author would run out of good ideas and that seems to be the case in this 16th book of the Goldy Schultz, the caterer, series.
Although Goldy repeatedly tells herself she shouldn't interfer with her husband's investigation of varioius crimes, including murder, she jumps in and demonstrates her complete lack of common sense at every opportunity. If this is what Coloradans are like, I can better understand why that state has been the home to recent mass shootings.
Of course, the characters in the book defy logic and alll come through safely, even though as a reader I wasn't sure I wanted them all to. This book had some really unpleasant characters, and they weren't the "criminals".
Maybe I need to go back and read some of the earlier books in this series so I will care about these characters more. Look me up!
